    I will try to make a program in Wii, but i don't know in what language i need to write my applications and what i need.
    I make programs with Visual Basic .Net (.net framework)

    then you're pretty much all set, it's not WAY more advanced than visual basic [​IMG]

    You need devkitPPC + libOGC.
    They come as part of devkitPro. (Google devkitpro)

    Apps are written in C(++)
    It will be a step up if you're used to VB, though.

    PPC is slightly different from VB in a lot of ways you should read up on codeing for wii to learn all the IOS commands n such.

    If you don't have any C experience you can make it easy first switching to C# so that you can get familiar with the syntax of C. Then you can do some unmanaged C in .net and then the wii. Beware when coding for wii you'll probably not have debugging unless you owned a usbgecko. You can do the transition from C# to C++ if you are good at object oriented programming yet most of the examples for wii out there in pure C. Few use the C++.

    DevKitPro has a Hello World example that you can start off with.

    Agreed. All of the .NET languages are pretty much used the same, so you can get good comparisons when going from VB to C#. I started with VB, but now I've switched to doing everything in C#.

    It's possible to fluctuate between languages if you know the principles [​IMG] I started with the commodore basic, then it became a long path, though only few of them I used to get paid (just a few months for c coding, done lots of vbscript namely asp now getting paid for coding in c#)
    the correct path much like this
    c64 basic -> 6502 assembly -> Pascal(ceased) -> x86 assembly (ceased) -> C (ceased)-> (fortran/pl1/rexx only for a period of time) -> vbscript -> java(ceased) -> c#
    now back to C again [​IMG]
